Hey, this is for the pretty girl in the purple sweater and glasses on the Vairo bus to campus around 7:50 PM. I just thought you were really pretty. I was sitting across from you. If you are interested in meeting again, email me and tell me what i was carrying.

You were working on a group project, looked like you were doing most of the work at the computer in the group booth on the east side of the room. I was the guy wearing glasses who kept staring, and you were looking back often enough…I didn’t want to blush or smile too much so I couldn’t maintain the eye contact in public! Gaydar homed in on you with earphones on, you’re really handsome. I don’t normally wear glasses, just been up since 4 am for flights back to SC…

You should email me so we can get to know each other better.

We were in the same row and you were by yourself for a bit before two girls came and sat between us so I didn’t get a chance to say anything do you. I think you were looking over at me and I was definitely looking over at you. You were beautiful. I hope you see this.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
